The Always Hungry community often gets asked questions about ketogentic diets and how to adapt AH to a keto lifestyle. We’ve answered some of these questions in our post on keto diets and would like to continue to keep the keto conversation open.

First though, it is important to remember that AH is not a keto diet. However, we understand that our readers come from many different backgrounds and would sometimes like to adapt their keto lifestyle to our AH plan. Because of that, we have developed some recipes that specifically work for both those following AH and keto diets.

Peanut Butter Power Keto Cookies

These keto cookies are very satisfying, for both your body and your taste buds. While we don’t recommend using sugar-alcohol sweeteners like erythritol, small amounts can be used occasionally on a ketogenic diet. However, most keto cookies include way too much of this type of sweetener. So this recipe is an alternative that uses very small amounts while creating a delicious cookie.

We recommend using no sweeteners in Phase 1 so that you can retrain your body and your tastebuds. Then, in Phase 2, you can begin experimenting with adding some sweeteners back in natural forms like honey and maple syrup. As always with AH, pay attention to how your body responds. Large amounts of erythritol have been linked to gastrointestinal issues for some people. Once you feel stable in your AH way of eating, you can try these cookies as a way to add variety or to share with anyone in your life who needs a keto-adapted and delicious cookie.
